Alion Awarded CG(X) Contract

Thursday, October 09, 2008

Alion Science and Technology has been awarded a contract to support the Navy in managing the design and acquisition of the Navy's next generation Guided Missile Cruiser, CG(X). The award, a delivery order under the NAVSEA SeaPort Enhanced (SeaPort-e) contract, has a potential value of $127.8m over five years. The base year value is approximately $18.6m.

CG(X) will be a surface combatant tailored for joint air and missile defense and joint air control operations providing airspace dominance and protection to Joint forces operating in the Seabase. CG(X) will replace the U.S.S. Ticonderoga, CG 47 class AEGIS cruisers and improve the Fleet's air and missile defense capabilities against advancing threats, particularly ballistic missiles.
 
Vice Adm. Scott Fry (USN, Ret.), Alion Sector Senior Vice President, said
that this is the first new shipbuilding program awarded to Alion that calls on the fully integrated capabilities of John J. McMullen Associates (JJMA) and assets of Anteon Corporation, which were both acquired by Alion in the past three years.   Work will be performed primarily in the area and will be supported by business units throughout Alion.
